Mataram: -A major natural disaster on the Indonesian island of Lombok Sunday killed at least 19 people, injured dozens and damaged buildings, officials said.

A powerful magnitude 7 natural disaster has hit the Indonesian island of Lombok.

She said the warning was for the lowest level of tsunami, and that small waves just 15 cm high were detected in three villages.

Teigen and family have been staying in a house on stilts, which is a great way to enjoy Bali's attractive water, but must not feel great in an quake.

It was a very different experience for a young couple from the United Kingdom who told Mirror who got engaged just five minutes before the quake struck.

People react following an quake in Ampenan district, Mataram, Lombok, Indonesia on August 5, 2018.

Video showed screaming people running in panic from houses in a Bali neighborhood and vehicles rocking.

The tremble came a week after a magnitude-6.4 quake killed 14 people on the tourist island.

Like Bali, Lombok is known for pristine beaches and mountains.

An quake measuring 7.0 magnitude on the Richter scale rocked Indonesia on Sunday. Hotels and other buildings in both locations are not allowed to exceed the height of coconut trees.

Indonesia, one of the most disaster-prone nations on earth, straddles the so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire", where tectonic plates collide and numerous world's volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur.
